Leyton Orient have issued their thanks to supporters and the wider football community for their support after head coach Justin Edinburgh was admitted to hospital yesterday morning.

Edinburgh was "taken ill unexpectedly" on Monday, the club confirmed in a statement, and they later tweeted a message of support to the boss.


A further statement on the club's Twitter account today said: "Following Justin Edinburgh's admission to hospital on Monday morning, we would like to thank every supporter, club and organisation that has sent messages for Justin.

"We are supporting the Edinburgh family closely, and the club's medical team is liaising with the specialist staff at the hospital where he is receiving the best possible care.

"Thank you again for all of your support at this time. We will update you through official club channels when appropriate and kindly request that the family's privacy continues to be respected.

"Get well soon, Justin."
